The Wisconsin FFA Foundation has selected deserving recipients for the 2012 post-secondary scholarships. These scholarships are generously provided by companies and individual endowed funds.
"We are very encouraged by the increase of funds awarded, and we want to be providing even more to these very deserving students," said Nicole Nelson, executive director of the Wisconsin FFA Foundation. "We also saw a 50% increase in the number of applications, as well as an increase in the application quality and amount of financial need expressed. These scholarships are crucial to supporting these youth in the next step of their career preparation."
Applicants must be a senior in high school or enrolled in a university or technical school and have maintained a satisfactory scholastic record. Winners of the 2012 Wisconsin FFA Foundation post-secondary scholarships will be recognized at the Wisconsin FFA Convention in June.
